Comments on FMCSA Pilot Program to Allow 18-21-Year-Old Drivers

On July 12, 2019, CVSA submitted comments to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) request for comments on a pilot program to allow 18-to 21-year-old drivers to operate in interstate commerce. CVSA’s comments encouraged FMCSA to exclude hazardous materials and passenger carriers from the program, make appropriate considerations to the impact of required safety technology on the pilot program results and provided considerations for potential data sources of younger driver safety performance.
